Doctor Sameer Jejurikar has been performing cosmetic plastic surgery in the Dallas area for more than 21 years. He has watched as the entire discipline has advanced through technology and approach. But he fears that there are major safety issues when it comes to his signature surgery. The doctor is proficient at the Brazilian butt lift procedure.
There are some significant risks when it comes to the Brazilian butt lift. Fat is taken from other parts of the body and then grafted under the skin of the buttocks. This gives the backside a much fuller appearance. The procedure sounds simple but it comes with significant risks. The grafted fat can put pressure on blood vessels which can cause blood clots. Mistakes during the procedure can even be fatal.
That’s why Sameer Jejurikar founded the Multisociety Gluteal Fat Grafting Task Force. This group of dedicated doctors travels the world to teach others how to perform the gluteal grafting procedure. His group also performs studies to discover the best practices for initial incisions as well as the angle of fat insertion.
Doctors become much better at the procedure with more practice. That’s why Sameer Jejurikar and his group of safety-first doctors puts on demonstrations. These demonstrations are so in-depth that doctors attending the convention gain experience by proxy which increases patient safety.
The Gluteal Grafting Task Force is extremely focused on prevention. After all, it is much easier to stop a health problem before it starts. It’s difficult and costly to correct a mistake that has already been made. This is especially true when it comes to the Brazilian butt lift procedure.
Through education, the task force endeavors to educate cosmetic plastic surgery surgeons on the best practices for preventing mistakes. It saves money, increases patient safety and saves lives.
